Roaming Rooster, a local restaurant chain with 11 restaurants in the DC Metro area, will be opening its third Montgomery County restaurant at 8537 Georgia Ave. in the space that was previously home to Flip’d by IHOP.

Flip’d by IHOP closed on June 1st, 2023 after opening in September of 2022, when IHOP made the decision to close all of its Flip’d locations. Roaming Rooster has existing Montgomery County locations in Pike & Rose and Gaithersburg and offers fried chicken products including sandwiches, tenders, wings, and more. The menu can be seen here.

More on Roaming Rooster per its website: “In early 2015, Roaming Rooster was founded in Washington, D.C. by a family with a unique concept. The idea of a food truck with fried chicken that you could feel good about eating: free-range, grain-fed, and antibiotic free chicken served fresh every day. Within months, word got out on social media about the delicious poultry menu and the demand for Roaming Rooster soon called for the expansion from one food truck to three and subsequently, to numerous brick and mortars. Since then, the popularity of the only food truck in D.C. serving tasty free-range chicken has grown massively. Requests for catering, private events, and scheduled food truck visits have been pouring in from D.C. and the surrounding areas of Maryland and Virginia. The fast expansion of Roaming Rooster in just under a year is easy to explain – where your food comes from matters, and we bring that ideal to every meal we serve.”
